Too Many Boards? Advice and Strategies for Managing and Consolidating Advisory Bodies

Advisory boards are a popular tool for gathering and refining public input. However, without proper care and feeding, they can quickly outgrow their original mission and take on a life of their own. It can be challenging, both logistically and politically, to reign in boards that have grown way past their policy guardrails. Learn how the City of Corvallis created a public process that can help how to focus, refine, or consolidate boards.

Presenter: Patrick Rollens

Patrick works at the intersection of news, social media, public information and community engagement. As a Public Information Officer at the City of Corvallis, Oregon, his job is to serve people who want up-to-the-minute coverage of their community — whether that's a city, a school district or a neighborhood block. He manages all of the communications and public engagement for the City, as well as collecting feedback and input from the broader community. This has created stronger connections between the Corvallis community and their local government by building trust and bringing in new voices. A key part of his recent work has been leading the citywide adoption of the public engagement framework from the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2).
